Hello. I’m Paul Hornback, and I am honored to be your new state Senator, representing Carroll, Henry, Shelby and Trimble Counties, as well as part of Jefferson.
You may be wondering how this has happened, especially since my friend, Senator Ernie Harris, has served you well, so let me explain. After each U.S. Census, it is the Constitutional duty of the state legislature to realign voting districts according to population shifts. This week, we did just that as the Senate and the House passed legislation that drew new district lines.
